Fillet, roasted potatoes, wok carrots & red wine sauce

Fillet of beef with roasted potatoes, wok carrots and red wine sauce.
Serves 4
I suggest to prepare the food in the order in which the recipes are listed below

Red wine sauce
1 small red onion
1 Tbsp margarine or canola or sunflower oil
200 mL red wine
1 cube meat bullion
200 mL water
1 Tbsp tomato puree
1 teaspoon dried thyme or 6 sprigs fresh thyme
1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • Chop the onion finely and fry over medium heat in a saucepan until it softens.
  • Add wine, water, bullion cube, tomato puree and thyme.
  • Let the sauce cook on low heat until half remains (about 30 min). Stir occasionally.
  • Strain the sauce. Thicken with the cornstarch.
  • Tip: Keep an eye on the sauce, if you have too much heat the sauce might reduce too much, but you can add more liquid if this happens (beef broth and / or wine).

Roasted fingerling potatoes
600-800 grams of fingerling potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper

  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees C (450 F)
  • Wash the potatoes and halve the unpeeled potatoes lengthwise and blend them with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Place the potatoes in an ovenproof dish and roast in oven for about 30 minutes until potatoes are soft. Stir a few times over time.

Wok carrots
300 g carrots in different colors
1 Tbsp sunflower oil
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp soy sauce

  • Wash and peel the carrots.
  • Cut them into thin sticks (julienne)
  • Recommend that you wait for the next step until it’s time to roast/grill the meat
  • Heat oil in a wok-pan or frying pan at regular
  • Add carrots and wok for 3-4 minutes, stir regularly
  • Remove wok from heat and add honey and soy. Stir and serve.

Roasted / grilled Fillet of beef
4 beef fillet steaks, about 150 grams each, 3 cm thick
1 tbsp margarine
Salt and pepper

  • Heat the margarine in a frying or griddle pan
  • Add the fillets, sear them for 1 minute on one side, turn them, reduce heat to medium-low
  • Grill the fillets for another 2-3 minutes, turn the fillets again and finish for 2-3 minutes. (Longer time for the medium, less time for medium-rare)
  • For well-done steaks, grill for about 4-5 minutes per side. Depending on the thickness of the fillets.

Enjoy!
